Sample text

Note that the contents of the pseudepigraphical books of Enoch were barely known to Kircher’s time. F. Frigo, ‘Il ruolo della sapienza egizia nella rappresentazione del sapere di Athanasius Kircher’. ), Athanasius Kircher, p. 99. But Kircher apparently had not accessed the relevant Vatican Ms 71 or Peiresc’s precious copy of Ethiopic Enoch. A. Dillman was suggesting in Kircher’s day chapter and verse numbers for Ethiopic I Enoch by inserting them into a Berlin Ms, but publication of his efforts had to wait two centuries.

It is probable that about this time, if not earlier, Kircher made the decision to enter the Society of Jesus. 41 That Kircher should choose to become a Jesuit42 is convincing proof of his religious faith. One wonders, however, how aware he was of the implications of becoming a Jesuit, at that time and place. He was not yet a man: his few years had been spent in the shelter of his family and in the kindly care of the Jesuit fathers in a predominantly Catholic city. 47 Their recognized role in Germany before and during the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648), which gave birth to their description as the ‘shock troops of the Counter-Reformation’, aroused a glowing hatred in Protestants, who firmly believed that in France the Jesuits had inspired St Bartholomew’s Night, in England the Gunpowder Plot, and in Germany the ‘Prager Fenstersturz’.

This of course included the practice of married clergy. His congregation immediately condemned Göbel’s treachery. During his brief Protestant career, Fr Göbel had married his predecessor Dr Oethe’s daughter. Although he now formally renounced his wife and returned to the state of celibacy,12 this gesture was derided by his flock, who under the able leadership of their mayor, Hektor von Jossen, remained staunch Protestants. Open rebellion and defiance against Balthasar and his Jesuits quickly flared and in the summer of 1576 Balthasar was peacefully and decisively deposed by Julius, Prince Bishop of Würzburg.
